Living Will Drafting
A Living Will is a document that where you can set forth the type of treatment that you desire in the event that you cannot express your wishes to your doctors and medical professionals treating you. This document can also be helpful in the event that your health care agents are unable to act on your behalf. Usually, a Living Will and Health Care Proxy are drafted and executed in conjunctions with each other.
Often times, individuals request that medical personnel withhold treatment if it merely prolongs dying and there is no reasonable expectation of recovery. It is important to note that a health care proxy is applicable to a wide-range of medical decisions whereas a health care proxy specifically applies where a patient is suffering from a terminal illness and has lost mental capacity. Nevertheless, this is an important document that can be drafted to meet your specific desires should you be in this situation.
